Introducing Halo Community Missions!!!
What are they?:
They are like beefed up daily challenges related to just a game or two. You get points and player page awards and compete with your friends for bragging rights. Here take a look at BTB Team of One Mission.
How it works:
Go to a mission detail by clicking a link on the Mission Control page, read the debriefing, and then submit a link.
What are Tiers?
We wanted everyone to be able to participate so we have tiered the missions for up to three tiers, Tier 1 being the easiest. You can submit Tier 1 and then go back and submit Tier 2 or 3 later on. Or if you nail it in one shot, just select Tier 3 from the the submission form on the mission debriefing screen.
How do points work?
You get however many points are listed for the tier, each tier does not sum up. Tier 3 will give you however many points are listed for tier 3. So if I have 25 points from a mission I completed tier 2 on and go back and complete tier three which is worth 50 points I will receive 50 points total for the mission. Do not worry higher Tiers will always have higher points.
Where does difficulty fit in?
Difficulties allow us to set a point range for missions. For instance, a normal difficulty mission will have a max tier point value of 26-50. Missions with 3 tiers will be closer to their max point value for their difficulty. It is also useful if members want to sort the mission list difficulty column.
- Easy - Up to 25pts
- Normal - Up to 50pts
- Heroic - Up to 100pts
- Legendary - Up to 150pts
- Mythic - Up to 200pts
Can I submit old links?
You cannot submit links older than the created date in mission control.
How do I submit a completed Mission?

Why was my submission returned?
A couple of reasons are, you did not complete the Objective for the tier you requested credit for or your link was not viewable as submitted. All links as show in the first below should have a gamertag in them. If you are logged in by default they don't show the gamertag, using the form below the submission form, type in your GT and click View Game History!, this will allow you to copy the proper link.
When can we expect new missions?
You can expect to get a mission every Monday for May and June. Everyone say it with me, "Mission Mondays!" Then 1-2 missions will be added every month.
Are there Leader Boards?
Currently planning out the leader boards. You will be able to filter by game, difficulty, mission type, and even filter for only your halocommunity.com friends as well as do an in-depth player to player comparison. Leader board will default to most recent Halo game even though an overall leader board can be pulled.
Wait, why is the tier description different than what it was yesterday?
Things do not always go according to plan, sometimes the mission changes for one reason or another. We will be fair in these changes and try to keep them to a minimum to prevent a lot of confusion. This is a new system, so points may need to be reevaluated when we get more missions in the system. Users regardless of when they completed the mission will all receive the most recent points listed. All changes will be as fair as we can possibly make them.
I would like to thank Bomber and HC FireFoot for helping out with the general design and testing of the system as well as the rest of the HC staff. Shocky and Danni the graphics/awards for this look awesome.
